Trip Dreamin’: The Beauty of Muscat with Shangri-La’s Barr Al Jissah Resort

February 10, 2010 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort, MuscatBringing you a daily dose of vacation exoticism during this coldest winter in recent memory... (whether you're under piles of snow in D.C.'s Snowmageddon, or bundled up against the cold in Chicago) Today we're traveling to a far-off, sun-drenched land at the edge of the glittering bay of Al Jissah in Oman. The word's out: Shangri-La's Barr Al Jissah Resort and Spa, a luxe three-hotel resort village in the Sultanate's capital of Muscat, is a stunner. It's not just the setting that will take your breath away (though there's a lot to be said for the dramatic mountainscape edged against sandy beaches). The resort is an oasis of lush landscaping and expansive facilities from scuba diving center to the spa. Want to plop down and catch some rays on the beach? A private butler will attend to your every whim. The resort is currently offering an "Arabian Adventures" package from OMR 154 per night which provides a free fifth night plus daily breakfast and free Broadband Internet Access. Available until April 30, 2010.
